It has been one week since I blogged here (or anywhere else). All this expected responsibility is seriously encroaching on my blogging.
But it's all good busyness. My summer class continues, I took on a second tutor student, and P.E.O. Grand Poobah duty provides a never-ending list of tasks. In fact, we just invited a woman to join our P.E.O. chapter (the only way to get in is by invitation, but it's pretty easy to get yourself invited...), and I was actually relieved when she turned us down after she just found out she's moving soon.
My reaction is, "Rejection - OH good, WHEW!!", since there's a whole cascade of activity stemming from an invitation - especially if its accepted.
Magnum's dad and stepmom were here for a visit yesterday. And they took us all out to dinner last night, mainly to celebrate Wolfgang's 21st birthday earlier this week. Yes, we have another official adult in the family now.
So we learned something about Bonefish Grill's booze policy. EVEN THOUGH the driver's license shows the holder as being 21 years old, they do not accept a minor license as acceptable ID for booze consumption. I don't know about other states, but here in Colorado, driver's licenses for people under 21 have a different layout than those for the older folks. Since Wolfgang just turned 21 and hasn't gotten a new driver's license yet, he can't get Bonefish booze.
As a show of solidarity, we all abstained from having wine with our dinners...
Oh Heck No, we didn't! We happily sloshed and imbibed while Wolfgang joined Meego at the figurative kids' table.
Bonefish did bestow a little special thing upon Wolfgang for the birthday:
a cute little box of "World Famous Enstrom Almond Toffee".
So know that if you go to Bonefish Grill before getting your grownup driver's license, your milestone birthday won't be totally ignored.
As far as I can tell, there's no booze in the toffee.
So summer is quickly winding down. Didn't it just begin? Band camp ("this one time?...") starts for Meego tomorrow, and Wolfgang will be moving to the new apartment this week - taking his various piles with him.
Although it's been good and productive, I kinda feel like I've got little to show for the summer "break" as far as adventure goes. Well, life is what you make it, I suppose. Off for an adventure buying some crickets for the toads!
